Language Police Drop Charges.A Texas City woman had disorderly conduct charges dropped last week.
Disorderly conduct charge brought by an assistant fire marshal against a woman who dropped the F-bomb at Wal-Mart has been dropped, the city’s interim manager said Wednesday.
When reached by phone, Kathryn Fridge, 29, of Texas City, said she was elated to hear the news and felt vindicated.
Alfred A. Decker IV, La Marque assistant fire marshal, cited Fridge on Aug. 4 when he overheard her utter the granddaddy of all expletives. Fridge, who was shopping for batteries with her mother and 2-year-old daughter ahead of Tropical Storm Edouard’s landfall, said “They don’t have any f------ more.”
Decker took Fridge to his car, handcuffed her and wrote her a citation. City Prosecutor Jay Brown dropped the charge March 19, said interim City Manager Eric Gage.
“After completion of his investigation to the facts of the case and existing case law, the state contends there is insufficient evidence to proceed and moves to dismiss,” said Gage, reading Brown’s comments on the decision.
This was all about batteries while preparing for a hurricane. The lady did say it front of her children. She's got to be a wonderful mom. But this Decker needs to be fired and get a new job. f- U Decker!

EPA Declares Carbon Dioxide a Health HazzardI got a news update from ISA today declaring that CO2 is a danger to public health. Todays Wall Street Journal reports.
According to an internal document presented by the EPA to White House officials earlier this month, the EPA believes the health effects of elevated greenhouse-gas levels could cause "severe heat waves...with likely increases in mortality and morbidity, especially among the elderly, young and frail." The agency also said climate change caused by higher greenhouse-gas levels could result in more severe storms and more suffering related to "floods, storms, droughts and fires."I suppose this means mortality and morbidity is worse here in Texas than it is in in Nome Alaska this warm weather is must be killing us. Maybe its just me but it seems that most places in the U.S might be a little nicer if it did warm up a bit. Seems like we hear more about killer blizzards and icing plane crashes than we do aboutn killer heat waves. This is all based on a false premise of global warming anyway, Its pretty clear we are currently on the a climactic cooling trend. It does provide the Obamanation an excuse to grab at more Government control and regulation.
The Environmental Protection Agency's new leadership, in a step toward confronting global warming, submitted a finding that will force the White House to decide whether to limit greenhouse gas emissions under the nearly 40-year-old Clean Air Act.
Under that law, EPA's conclusion -- that such emissions are pollutants that endanger the public's health and welfare -- could trigger a broad regulatory process affecting much of the U.S. economy as well as the nation's future environmental trajectory. The agency's finding, which was sent to the White House Office of Management and Budget without fanfare on Friday, also reversed one of the Bush administration's landmark decisions on climate change, and it indicated anew that President Obama's appointees will push to address the issue of warming despite the potential political costs.

Government Proclaims Ron Paul Supporters Are TerroristSeems as though a state and federal government report claims that anyone riding around with a Ron Paul bumber Sticker is a potential terrorist.
Titled “The Modern Militia Movement,” the report is dated Feb. 20 and designed to help police identify militia members or domestic terrorists. Red flags outlined in the document include political bumper stickers such as those for U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, talk of conspiracy theories such as the plan for a mega-highway from Canada to Mexico and possession of subversive literature.Maybe we need more libertarian type Ron Paul supporters and fewer government studies.
